Morrissey, yes that Morrissey, curated a new Ramones album

Nothing about Morrissey screams punk, but Morrissey is actually a pretty big punk head. He briefly fronted a punk band before forming The Smiths and he frequently cites acts such as the New York Dolls and Patti Smith as among his biggest influences. He’s also a super fan of The Ramones, who has said, in quintessential Morrissey fashion, “my love for the Ramones would out-live time itself.”

This might explain why Morrissey was charged with curating the tracklist and sleeve (below) for a new Ramones greatest hits album. A statement on True to You said the compilation would soon be released through Sire / Rhino Records, adding, “Morrissey is thankful to the Ramones management for this invitation.”

You don’t want to linger until the last minute to make your
plan so I would recommend reading the waterway guidebook
in advance. Given a choice, our primates will eat nothing but bananas.
Another important application of second law of thermodynamics is found in refrigerators and heat pumps, which are based on the principle of reversed Carnot cycle or reversed Carnot theorem.

For a start, they have a short product life cycle,
from product development to marketing. The first thing that you will want to look for in moving
and storage companies in Atlanta is how their staff is trained.
Moving from one place to other would not have been such a difficult task had not the number of things that needed to be moved being so overwhelming.

Well Andy, he stated that when he was 17 yo lol

A young “Steve” Morrissey (he would have been 17 years old at the time) writes in the July 24, 1976 issue of Melody Maker:

The Ramones are the latest bumptious band of degenerate no-talents whose most notable achievement to date is their ability to advance beyond the boundaries of New York City, and purely on the strength of a spate of convincing literature projecting the Ramones as God’s gift to rock music.

I’m pretty sure I remember Morrissey saying in the past that The Ramones weren’t important. And then I remember Bradford Cox of Deerhunter rightfully putting him in his place saying that The Ramones are a thousand times more important than The Smiths which is true.
